Health Center Facility Loan Guarantee Program

Bureau of Primary Health Care, Health Resources and Services Administration, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
Applications accepted on an ongoing basis



The HRSA Health Center Facility Loan Guarantee Program facilitates access to capital funding and reduces financing costs for health centers by guaranteeing up to 80% of financing needed to support capital infrastructure projects. After approving a loan guarantee, HRSA monitors the loan repayment status and assesses the operational/financial viability of the health center during the life of the loan.

Funding may be used for the construction, expansion, alteration, renovation, and modernization of health center medical facilities.


Eligible health centers must be active Health Center Program awardees, as defined under section 330 of the Public Health Services Act.
